Global Approvals Laboratory

Our global approvals laboratories in the UK, France, America and India, boast extensive, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, providing in-depth testing capabilities to ensure adherence to the latest safety, EMC and Environmental standards.

Beyond mandatory testing, we pride ourselves on driving industry standards and ensuring products excel, resulting in compliance with a range of global initiatives. On hand to offer assistance from the conception to production, our team of experienced engineers aim to resolve any issues that may arise, reducing the risk of non-compliance and minimising time to market.

Facilities include:

  • An Intertek accredited safety testing laboratory
  • Full Anechoic and screened rooms for EMC testing
  • State-of-the-art environmental test area including the RDT chamber capable of performing simultaneous reliability testing on 256 products
  • The first EPA accredited laboratory for Energystar testing of set-top boxes in the UK
  • Power measurements ensuring compliance against ErP Directive 2009/125/EC

Product Safety Testing

Pace provides a full range of product safety testing, including electrical safety legislation and worldwide product safety requirements outside the EEA. We offer practical advice on techniques for achieving safety in design including: earthing; fusing; creepage and clearance; material flammability; fire enclosures; warning markings and the part they play in the design of safe products. Our Intertek accredited safety testing lab ensures that all products meet and surpass the protection requirements of the LV D (low voltage directive) by testing to the latest EN60065 and EN60950 standards.

EMC Testing

Electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) describes the ability of a technology or product to coexist in an environment with other electro-magnetic devices with minimum interference.

Pace ensures that our products meet and surpass the protection requirements of the EMC directive by testing to the latest harmonised standards.

Environmental Testing

We provide the latest in environmental testing services covering shock, vibration, climatic and mechanical testing.

Climatic Testing

Our unique combinations of test facilities are continuously monitored by computer-controlled data collection systems and include five climatic chambers.

Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) / Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS)

HALT and HASS precipitate failures in electronic products and are used extensively by leading manufacturers as part of their design and production processes.

Reliability Demonstration Testing (RDT)

RDT is an efficient way to test whether the product will attain a specified life. This life is typically the target MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of the product.
